That's one of the things I love about when June rolls around every year, time to start pulling out all those great 76-ers! Don't forget those 74's, either... ;)

6/12 is a fairly fun one. A fairly "laid back"-even for 76-show that doesn't really get to rockin' until near the end. For some reason, probably because they were among the earliest tapes I ever had of the era, these are some of my all time favorite versions of LL>Supplication, High Time, and even Promised Land. Wharf Rat into Comes a Time is one of those rare and unique back to back Jerry ballads (similar to 12/8/73's Wharf Rat>Stella Blue). Who doesn't love a good, and in this case relatively rare, Comes a Time?

I believe there are other slightly better sounding sources for this show than the one linked, but that's just my opinion.
